TASTER SESSIONS

These relaxed sessions give you the opportunity to try out making with clay for the first time, or for a refresher and intro to the studio if you’ve done some making before. Sessions allow time for having a go on the potters wheel, attempting a pinch pot or learning how to coil build. Full demonstrations given at the beginning and tuition and support on hand throughout.

£30 for one session includes tuition, materials, tools and equipment and a bisque and glaze firing of any work you produce. A transparent glaze will be put on your work by Rose after the session and your pieces will be ready to collect within 3 weeks of the session.

Date: Saturday August 4th

Time: 10.00 – 12.30 and 1.30 – 4.30
